PlotEdit

Raj is a happy and free-spirited Indian-American bachelor who visits his ancestral homeland in Mumbai, in order to attend his cousin's wedding. Once in India, he finds himself pushed towards marriage by his overzealous uncle (Satish Shah). His uncle's employee, Namrata (Aishwarya Rai) chaperones Raj on a series of set-ups/dates, all of which he deliberately sabotages. During the course of the wedding ceremonies, Raj discovers that he is falling for Namrata. After some deliberation, he decides to tell her, but to his surprise, he discovers she has a 7-year-old son, Aditya, and is already married.

Raj is confused but forms a strong fatherly relationship with Aditya. Raj's uncle informs him that Namrata's husband disappeared right before Aditya's birth, and has never returned to his son or wife. Finding a letter that Raj had written confessing his feelings, Namrata gets upset thinking Raj tried to use her son to get close to her. She attempts to distance herself from him, but a stubborn Raj follows her to Aditya's boarding school, having promised the boy to pose as his father. While Raj drives Namrata home, he sarcastically comments that her circumstances must have been her fault. Upset, she tells Raj that her husband Sanjeev was the one that left her for another woman whilst she was pregnant. Eventually, Namrata comes round and they begin to bond.

After some months, Raj decides to introduce Namrata to his mother. A short while later, he finds out that Sanjeev (Arbaaz Khan) has returned and is looking to reconcile with Namrata. Sanjeev also admits that he and his mistress had been engaged in criminal activity previously.

Upon hearing this, Namrata is aghast and makes it clear that she does not want anything to do with him. However, Sanjeev refuses to leave, becoming stubborn and persistent, threatening her with a lawsuit for custody of Aditya.

After a chance meeting, Raj invites Sanjeev to his home for dinner. Aditya is present and is affectionate with Raj, calling him "Dad." Sanjeev becomes jealous and angry, insulting Raj and his family. After learning of Sanjeev's bad behaviour towards Raj, Namrata finally gets the courage to stand up to him. She publicly tells him that she deplores his abandonment of her and Aditya, and his irresponsible and immoral acts. She also admits that she is in love with Raj. Sanjeev is ashamed and disappears once again.

Six months later Raj and Namrata decide to get married, and are soon expecting a child.
